2020 ENRICH Banner

Engage with like-minded physicians, nurses, health care professionals and leaders from across the country and form connections with others interested in improving communication in healthcare.

The Academy of Communication in Healthcare uses evidence, expertise and passion to strategically develop relationship-centered communication with patients and peers in organizations across the country.  Esteemed healthcare organizations and academic medical centers have partnered with ACH to develop their staff and leaders to form the most meaningful relationships.  ACH's 38th annual course, ENRICH, offers an intimate opportunity to learn those very skills that can help you engage your team, patients, and peers from a different perspective. 

Over the course of 2.5 days, participants will intensively engage in interactive workshops and intimate small groups that teach strategic communication skills for health care professionals and clinicians. These skills offer a powerful paradigm for transforming relationships- and thus team effectiveness and outcomes- in the healthcare landscape.


 Co-located with Research Forum

ENRICH will be co-located with the ACH Healthcare Communication Research Forum this year! The Research Forum showcases the latest research and teaching methods in the field of healthcare communication. ENRICH participants will have the opportunity to engage with participants of the Research Forum during the Saturday general session, a poster session and reception, meals and breaks!
